How can I extend the range of my 2.4GHz cordless phone?

I'm thinking of relocating the base station to a different part of the house, behind a brick wall which will significantly reduce the range of the handsets . Is it possible to open one of these up and install a more powerful antenna?

Bonus points if you can find parts available in Australia.

There are range extender antennas that clamp on to the existing base station antenna - no soldering or hacking required.
